Consumer Reports Assails Verizon iPhone
Consumer Reports' opinion of the iPhone hasn't improved a whole lot, even with the addition of Verizon Wirelss as a carrier.
In a blog post published over the weekend the magazine, which famously pulled its recommendation of the device during last year's antenna brouhaha, called the Verizon version "promising, but likely to be short-lived."
"The Verizon Wireless iPhone 4 has plenty in its favor, especially compared with its AT&T sibling," editors Paul Reynolds and Mike Gikas wrote on the magazine's official blog. "But it may be quickly replaced by a newer, cooler version more quickly than is customary even for the die-young life expectancy of most smart phones."
